A ROMANTIC AND ILLUSTRIOUS HISTORY
Knighted in 1922 for his pioneering role in the development of Johannesburg, Julius Jeppe married Grace Cowen in 1891 and together they had five children.
As its main benefactor, Johannesburg’s oldest public school, Jeppe High School for Boys was named after this prominent and generous businessman.
Today, the View Hotel resides in the house which Sir Julius Jeppe built for his eldest daughter way back in those heady days of Johannesburg’s early development.
Steeped in history, this beautiful building underwent extensive restoration which started in 2009 and now transports its guests back to a bygone, golden era of over 100 years ago.
Built on, what was then considered, far-off countryside, The View Boutique Hotel is a luxury, five star hotel located in the heart of the historic and leafy suburb of Auckland Park, close to the Johannesburg CBD.
